With "Landkjenning" (in English "Landing"), Glittertind commemorates the history and poetry of the Norwegian homeland. Traditional melodies and Nordic sounds determine the overall picture of an album that nevertheless finds repeated diversity in its placement of drums and fast riffs. The folkloric sounds delivered by authentic instruments of old skillfully merge with modern elements to create catchy, detail-oriented works. The clean and powerful vocals, sung in Norwegian, give "Landkjenning" a unique touch. The very profound lyrical concept revolves around Norway's Christianization and transports the listener 100 years back into the past, to a time where one had to decide between the new religion and the traditional old ways. Kris Verwimp's (Arkona, Crimfall, Moonsorrow) artistic know-how has impressively captured this lyrical theme graphically. Glittertind's latest album is an authentic and primal piece of music that will undoubtedly capture the hearts of Folk Metal fans worldwide. (Longships and Mead.mp3)
